CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Beautiful house, great pool, lovely owners”


We (2 adults, 2 kids - 10 and 5) stayed in this house in the middle of August. Right from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by Eva and Gilles, who spolied us with a a welcome drink and didnt mind when 3 of us dived in the pool on our first night at 10pm!

The house is huge and would easily accommodate 8 people. Kitchen well equipped too.

The real highlight is the beautiful pool and its surrounding area - a great place to relax, sunbathe and cool off. The gardens are huge and a great place for the kids to play

 

Thank you for such a wonderful holiday. We all had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be returning.  The pool and gardens are stunning and house is ery spacious.  Hope to see you again soon!     August 2015
